In an effort to reunite stolen and recovered property with owners across the country, An Garda Síochána will hold its national property recovered day on Thursday, September 22, in Mullingar Garda Station from 10am to 1pm.
Members of the public are invited to the station to view items of property from across the Westmeath Division and the eastern region.
Should any member of the public not be in a position to attend Mullingar Garda Station on the day, catalogues of the property will also be available to view online at www.garda.ie
Members of the public who have had property stolen or lost can view property recovered from all areas around the country, which will be available to view on a division by division basis, through the Garda Flickr albums.
Speaking earlier this week, Sgt John Connolly, crime prevention officer for Westmeath, said: “We will have coloured catalogues of property in our possession as well as in our neighbouring Garda Divisions. This property may well have been stolen in other counties, so I would ask people to view it. I would also encourage the public to look at www.garda.ie in the days leading up to September 22. You will find property which is in the possession of various Garda Stations countrywide on this website. In relation to Westmeath, we would hope to unite items of jewellery, bicycles, and power tools with owners.
“We will also have our community policing unit, victim support gardaí, and a crime prevention stand with literature present for the public. We look forward to seeing the public viewing the property catalogues between 10am and 1pm in Mullingar Garda Station on September 22.”
If any member of the public has any information on any item of property on this site or information on stolen or lost property they can contact their local Garda station or the Garda Confidential Line on (1800 ) 666111.
